Get into Spirit of Christmas Holiday

I love the way Christmas smells, yes whenever I am getting out the Christmas boxes, they all have a distinct smell of this holiday. The fragrance of evergreen and fresh balsam instantly reminds me of holidays past. Christmas baking of cookies and cakes all heighten the holiday atmosphere. Garlands that are wrapped around the stair handrails and doorways allows every room in the house to have the scent of Christmas. This is one of the reasons I have always had a live tree, they smell sooooo good.

I believe scent is one of the most powerful decorating elements, it is appealing to all senses.  This is one of the reasons why realtors will tell you to bake cookies before a showing, it just feels more like home.

I hope you all enjoy the holiday season and bring your own “scent” to this holiday so you and your family can begin to enjoy the memories it envokes.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!!
